holiday gift guide: urban muse

One of our favorite rock & roll divas, Kim Schifino (the female half of the indie dance duo Matt & Kim) is a fearless, stylish and hilarious tartelette! Check out #MKrealtalk to see what we mean. She also lives by a cruelty-free philosophy, so when it came time to plan Matt & Kim’s Fall 2012 Lightning Tour, the duo arranged to host that city’s no-kill animal shelter in the concert venue’s lobby. This gave concert-goers the opportunity to learn how they can help keep their community a no-kill area. We’re very proud to call her a tartelette — but not too proud to snoop through her holiday gift list!

Today Jenna has STACKS of all the beauty & fashion magazines you could dream of on her desk & her favorite thing in the world is to come into the office in the morning (hot chai in hand) and see what’s new in the world of color & design. Her current obsession: tarte talk on pinterest.

 2. Anslem Reyle “UNTITLED” paint and monochromatic foil installation:  “This is what I am wishing for. Key word ‘wishing’. I love art and this is the dream piece.”

3. butter LONDON nail polish in yummy mummy: “My sister has two (adorable) little ones that keep her super busy so weekly mani pedis are just not possible. This is the prefect nude — plus, butter LONDON products are formulated without formaldehyde, toluene, DBP or parabens, which she & both appreciate.”

4. WEN by Chaz Dean winter vanilla mint cleansing conditioner:  “I gave my little brother a sample of WEN that I got from a QVC event and now he’s hooked — it’s always in his gym bag. This seasonal edition smells like candy canes!”

5. Whiskey Stones:  “The perfect host gift. Whiskey stones are odorless and tasteless cubes of solid soapstone that will chill your liquor without diluting it. unlike ice. Add them to your favorite libation and get the party started!”

6. Phillip Keel’s simple diary: “Simple diaries are not your average diaries. Everyday you’re prompted to answer a thought provoking inspired question. I love to do my daily entry with my morning latte to get a creative kick start to the day.”

7. puppy houndstooth bow tie collar:  “My dog Fast Eddie is one of tarte’s resident office pups. Since he works with me in the creative department, he definitely needs to dress the part. I am getting him this green houndstooth bow tie to wear to the office in the new year.”

Check out the tarte office pups on our Pinterest page. They are SO cute!

8. One of a kind pastel and neon vintage rhinestone necklace:  “This is for my best friend, Al — we’re both obsessed with ANYTHING neon. She’ll love this necklace and I love that it’s one of a kind.”
